An 1560 kg car, being lifted at a steady speed by a crane, hangs at the end of a cable whose radius is 3.5 10-3 m. The cable is 14 m in length and stretches by 10.5 10-3 m because of the weight of the car. Determine each of the following for the cable.
(a) the stress
(b) the strain
(c) Young's modulus© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 7:58 pm ad1c9bdddf
(a) Stress = Force / Area = (mass)(acceleration) / Pi*r^2 = ...
The solution calculates the stress and strain on a car lifted by a crane.
